Born: 19 September 2001 (Maidstone, England)
Central midfielder Harvey White was born in Maidstone and attended The Holmesdale School.
A keen cricketer in school, he was a regular for our Under-16s in 2017/18, scoring eight goals, while stepping up to feature once for the Under-18s.
During 2018/19, he scored six goals in 15 Under-18 Premier League appearances to help us finish second in that division - his tally included the first ever penalty to be scored at the new stadium as our youngsters beat Southampton 3-1 in a Test Event match there in March, 2019. A dead ball specialist who also filled in at left-back and centre-half during that eventful campaign, he scored once in three Under-18 Premier League Cup games and played twice in the FA Youth Cup at Millwall and Arsenal.
In September, 2018, he scored from the spot as our Under-17s beat Galatasaray in the final of the Euro Youth Cup in St Wendel, Germany.
Harvey featured in all but one of our eight UEFA Youth League matches in 2018/19 and played seven times in all competitions for our Development Squad. That included five showings in the Premier League 2, where he played at left-back in the last two games of the season, helping us secure back-to-back wins against Swansea and Derby to avoid relegation. He also scored a late free-kick at Portsmouth on his EFL Trophy debut in November, 2018.
In July, 2019, he made his senior debut at left-back during our pre-season tour of Asia.
